her. mr. alter's comments are directly on point because there is that authority under the constitution. >> right. >> but i don't think anyone who has followed this would say there was anything close to 51 senators who opposed her playing a foreign policy role in this administration. what i counted, and i have done some reporting on this issue, was about six senators who said they were considering filibustering her, maybe several more who didn't like some of her positions and wanted to get into the details 6 some of her statements about libya. but we have to be very clear when when he look at these kind of standoffs and we look at the way washington works that we in the press and many in the political class fall into the habit of talking about what a small minority does as if it's the majority. i don't mean to go on too long -- >> but you are so pause a minute, ari. >> i think it's an important -- >> of course it is. >> it's not a question of 51 votes. it never has been in the united states senate long before all of these filibuster issues and things. if you lose a certain set -- number

[ applause ] >> and joining me now from the white house, nbc news correspondent viqueira. vic, will the gop continue its pile-on of the ambassador? will it have the opposite effect of hardening the president and daring him essentially to select her for secretary of state perhaps? >> well, you know, it's hard to say exactly what is going through the president's mind at this point. a lot of people think that he is really under the gun to make an appointment, but hillary clinton is still the secretary of state. he may have some time yet. perhaps even as much as a month or up to the inauguration on january 20th. so there is that. second of all, susan rice made that pilgrimage, if you will, up to the senate after all the criticism that she got from john mccain and lindsey graham and other key republican senators after her appearance on the sunday shows talking about the incident in benghazi. they were so angry because they say she disseminated false informatio
is months overdue. i hope mrs. clinton backs up her promise and "i take full responsibility for benghazi." i hope you do, madam secretary. i hope you don't let the men die without answers. i hope a lot. in sports and business once you hope, you have already lost. she will come back and testify. then what? >> kimberly: this is disappointing. why do we put a push on for her to come do the right thing. this f she has a health issue, she has a health issue. concussion, memory loss? i don't know. this you seems suspicious. >> eric: you call this a mess. >> andrea: i don't buy this. i am not sure if she testifies we get answers anyway. clinton are not always the most forthcoming in testimony when they are sworn under oath. i hope the g.o.p. senators can three questions. the first, why wasn't the consulate secured after the two attacks. or why weren't they pulled outer consulate closed? why weren't there answers? i hope she answers them. >> kimberly: who ordered them to stand down? did you talk to president? i want a sometimeline. >> eric: what do you make of this? >> i am kind of with kimberly. i

, who wins the award in your block? >> oh, mr. 9-9-9, her man cane. you know, people using a presidential campaign to sell books, to sell themselves, to make that a steppingstone to a much larger career, no one did it better than herman cane -- or worse -- in this case. >> i would say that the worst trend this year was the republican party deciding that they couldn't win the game with the rules as written. so trying to keep people from voting and essentially rig the rules, which is a trenld, unfortunately, that is on going. they've seen the writing on the wall. and they're still trying to say how can we change the math and rig the rules so that we can still win. in virginia, for example, they propose changing the way that electoral votes are awarded so that it would be by congressional district which would unfairly favor republic s republicans. so they're still trying to rig the rules and hold back the tide of the demographics. >> and try to rig the rules in the middle of the game. i've seen them change the rules, but never mid game. at least wait until you lose the game.
of the public eye for a few days. mrs. obama joined her husband in his weekly address to wish all americans a merry christmas. >> after a decade of war, our heroes are coming home. all across america, military families are reuniting. so this week, let's give thanks for our veterans and their families and let's say a prayer for all our troops, especially those in afghanistan, who are spending this holiday season overseas, risking their lives to defend the freedoms that we hold so dear. >> this is the first family's fifth christmas in hawaii since mr. obama was elected president. hawaii's not a bad place to be right about now, especially when you consider how cold it is out here, gwen! >> today's not going to be all bad, wisdom. >> oh, really? >> no, it's not, trust me. yesterday, we had really gusty winds, creating very significant wind chills. let's take a look at some of those numbers. yesterday's wind gusts at national were at 43. 44 at baltimore. look, 51 at dulles, unbelievable. it did make it feel a lot colder than it actually was. 45 degrees, yesterday's high at dc, right where we sho

know, the media has already crowned her the 2016 democratic frontrunner. but many are now wondering if she will ever get around to testifying about libya marjorie omero is a democratic strategist joining us now. after we talked about mrs. clinton last thursday and i laid on that line with the immaculate concussion giving full credit to one of my tweets. one of mrs. clinton's top aides emailed me on christmas eve and said look, mrs. clinton, i'm shocked that you would kind of joke about. this she really did fall and she really has been advised to take bed rest. i will take them at their word but nevertheless in the eyes of a lot of people it is a bit of a convenient timing. mrs. clinton hasn't been seen in public. her health is badly compromised, i hope she is getting medical attention. i don't know if she has gone to the hospital. it doesn't look like she has. but does this mean she will testify after she leaves office, margie? >> i don't think this is convenient timing. she has gone to over 100 countries as secretary of state. i feel nauseous hearing about her schedule. i take her
to the house that she has on her agenda. mr. sessions: the gentleman is correct and we expect those. mr. woodall: this is the kind of house, deliberative house, i came to be part of two short years ago. we have the ability to get these things done in the next few days. i reject the idea that i read over and over again that this house has been delaying action this house got it right wetch got it right in a budget in april of 2011, we got it right in our budget in 2012, we got it right when we passed aest sequester replacement and we're getting it right with this rule today. with that, i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from new york. ms. slaughter: i'm pleased to yield one minute to the gentlelady from california, our leader, ms. pelosi. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized for one minute. ms. pelosi: thank you very much, madam chair. ranking member. thank you, mr. speaker. why did i sort of smell smoke when i heard this debate? it's reminiscent of nero fiddling while rome burned. the american people are waiting for us to get the

's david kerley in washington, following this, how is mrs. clinton tonight? >> we know that she came back from her last trip nine days ago with a stomach bug, earlier in the week, she became dehydrated, fainted, have a concussion, she did not go to the hospital. doctors are monitoring her. this means that she'll not testify this week about the attack on the mission in benghazi and the killing of our ambassador there, the republican chair of the house committee not happy about that. but abc's jake tapper has learned that john kerry will be tapped as the replacement. for hillary clinton. so, david, there's a chance she'll never testify what happened in benghazi. david? >> two developments tonight, hillary clinton recovering from a fall and a possible secretary of state kerry in our future. david kerley, thank you tonight. >>> when we come back here on the broadcast from newtown, connecticut, the profound question, how does this community celebrate christmas? look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema
is recognized. mr. berman: i would like to thank the sponsor of this legislation, ms. ros-lehtinen, for her leadership on this issue and her work in addressing the north korean threat. earlier this month, north korea carried out a missile launch using ballistic missile technology in correct defiance of the international community this important resolution condemns their launch, calls on the north korea to live up to its commitments, admere to its international obligations and deal piecefully with its neighbors. this is a blatant violation of the u.n. security council resolutions. 1718 and 1874. we urge the security council to take strong and concerted action to demonstrate that pyongyang's actions are completely unacceptable. in familiar -- in particular we call on china and russia to work construct ily with other members of the council to show that the international community is united in condemning north korea's provocative behavior. north korea is only further isolating itself with its irresponsible action and the development of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons will never bring the
viewers, bya because you asked now. they write this out of kentucky, when is mrs. clinton expected to testify about her role in the benghazi attacks on our consulate. a second question, were there any witnesses that survived the attack and when will we hear their testimony. secretary clinton you mentioned her, will that happen or not? >> she has said she will testify but only after the internal report investigation is done. i think she should testify immediately. but we have not heard her testimony yet and i think that's got to be a priority. when it comes to those witnesses, there were witnesses there. they were interviewed by the fbi. those interview reports have obviously not been made public, first of all, but also my last understanding is that the intelligence committee was still waiting to receive some of those reports. bill: why would they not share that with you? its that a risk. >> i think if they could be shared with me in a classified setting, i review information in the classified setting all the time and obviously have to protect that information. but most importantly
and the reserve the balance of my time. >> the gentleman from california. >> i agree with her completely, mr. speaker. it is very important that we do not let the sequestered to place. i hope and believe she is right that we will not see that happen. i would also like to associate myself with her remarks as it relates to ensuring that we do not go over the fiscal cliff. that is something that is very desired on our part as well. i would also like to respond to one. very quickly before a yield to my good friend from roseville. we would not be adjourned and the congress today and ending our work. i have said in the rules committee, mr. speaker, that we are going to continue with our work. the action that we're going to take as it relates to these two measures, again, the reconciliation package designed to ensure that as my friend from rochester said that we do as the sequestration, which we all know would be devastating. it is a package of $238 billion over a 10-year period of time that is a responsible measure measure that would not be gutting the programs but will begin tackling entitlements
: there is no way secretary clinton steps down and new secretary of state is in place, there is no way to call mrs. clinton back to testify? >> we hope that she will fulfill her desire to come before our committee. we hope that will happen. they have not shut the door on that, but i know as robert frost says, who knows what will happen. we have every expectation she will. that is our strict request and we hope she makes good on it. >> arthel: is there any way to ensure that these hearings will not be politicized? if you want the american people to get the real answers you have to keep politics out of it. >> it's very hard to keep politics out of anything we do in congress. what we're talking about is terrorist attack with four americans lost their lives, even though they requested more security and more help. we want to know what went wrong and to prevent another benghazi. american lives are at stake all over the world. we are targets. we want to make sure that another benghazi is not going to happen and only way you can do that is examine what happened with this one. >> arthel: congresswoman, tha
on the planes after 9/11. >> ari, he's not alone. >> no, he's not. >> mr. gohmert, congressman said he hoped the school had an m-4, m-5. there are many other people saying the same thing. >> the mother of the killer had plenty of guns that didn't protect her. it's ludicrous. this is up there with the gingrich colony on the moon. there aren't teachers out there clambering for it. that's where if newt gingrich speaks for anyone and i'm not sure he really does, but if he speaks for anyone, they're not in tune with the public mood right now. the question is how do -- there are people still coming back to the tobacco analogy. there are people that still smoke and people who drive really too fast and die on the roads. no one is saying in this point that we're talking about taking away guns out of the entirety of american culture. it's gun safety. and do you make schools safer by having more weapons out there. it's conceivable some other kid could break into the school's gun closet and turn it on the princip principal. >> the other issue which is how does a handgun compare against an ar-15, one tha
the evidence prove? and frankly, her lawyer, mr. bill cherry, is one of the finest attorneys in ft. lauderdale. he has the right to investigate this matter. and while being in the netherlands by itself is an innocuous fact, why aren't they answering these questions? >> that's not true. >> the trail of evidence will lead him to the end result, and if it's innocuous and there really is no mr. aguilar living and alive today, come forward and answer these questions. why can't they tell us what's going on? maybe there's more to the story, and that's why they're not coming forward. but the bottom line is this needs to be investigated, and jamie, as a surviving wife, has the right to know what the truth is concerning her husband. harris: tad? >> well, the bottom line here is if they're hiding money, it's easy to follow a paper trail of money. and this situation is no different than any other paper trail. also how hard would it be to get an investigator in the netherlands to look around, follow the money trail and see if they see anything that doesn't look proper? the bottom line is the only thing tha
passion, i hope that her passion for social justice is an inspiration to all of us. thank you, mr. speaker, and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from maryland seek recognition? mr. cummings: to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman ask for unanimous consent? mr. cummings: yes. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. mr. cummings: thank you very much. today i'm incredibly pleased to congratulate my dear colleague for her aessential to the chair of the senate appropriations committee. the senator's commitment to our great state is undeniable. she has worked tirelessly throughout her prestigious career to serve her fellow marylanders first as a social worker and now as one of the most influential members of the united states senate. the senator is a leader that maryland and truly our nation can be proud of. she was the first woman elected to the senate who was not preceded by her husband or father and has continued breaking barriers ever since. t

that mrs. clinton had been treated for a blood clot she had one in the back of her right leg in 1988, she described it as the most serious medical condition she ever experienced. after a stomach virus she fainted and hit her head. it is possible the newly discovered clot had form before she was diagnosed with a discussion. it also could have resulted from bed rest. >> the blood clot i'm assuming is similar to the one she had in 1988 which was in the back of her leg. she did have a concussion recently, which probably made her a little immobile at home, which is a bit of a risk factor for developing clots in veins in legs, especially in people who are at risk for them h-frpblgts since suffering the concussion secretary clinton has not made any public appearance and canceled overseas trips as well as congressional testimony on the attack at the u.s. consulate in bengazi. experts say the clot could require her to lessen her workload in the final weeks as soak of state. whatever the course of her treatment she will usher in the new year at a new york hospital. >> reporter: thank for the update

that will be truly the super bowl. and the republican party today is incapable of competing at that level, mr. gingrich says. >> yeah, and i think that's right. and i think they'd like to chip away at her popularity, as they can. it's going to be tough because, you know, she's going to -- it looks reich she's probably going to take some time off and do some philanthropic things that are going to be hard to kind of smear over the next year or two. but i think that's right. i think that's what's driving this. but they should be careful because, you know, if they pull clinton too much into a partisan contest, she'll remember just how much she enjoys it. and that will give her the taste of it. and then she will jump in. and then there will be that soup other bowl, like gingrich said, is going to be very tough for them to win. >> and, molly, i think that the smear stuff, whether we consider it a few or the many, look at what happened with susan rice. look at what happened with eric holder, the attorney general of the united states. i mean, these guys build up a steam roll over there in various par
